Jared Glengarry, a down-to-earth, sexy and wealthy widower-cum-dairy farmer, troubled by a guilty secret, is frustrated that he can’t find a suitable nanny to care for his son.
His beloved family hatch a plan to get him together with his astrologically-perfect match – a practical and caring, yet sassy journalist, Kirra Whitely who is also recently widowed and not quite through the grieving process.
When Kirra hears of an ad for the cattleman’s wife, she decides to do a story on him. But when she meets hunky Jared in the flesh and realises that he’s unaware of the ad and is struggling to complete the farm chores alone that day, her heart goes to him and she changes her mind.
Just as Jared learns Kirra is there under false pretences, they become isolated by flooding, and now they must deal with their potent sexual attraction as well as keep the farm running, in spite of the fact that they don’t trust each other or believe that they deserve a second chance at love.
